Warriors point guard Stephen Curry was helped off the court Tuesday with an apparent ankle injury.
In the final minute of the first half, Curry rolled his right ankle while backpedaling to the defensive end. He limped a few steps before falling to the hardwood. He limped to the locker room with the help of teammates, barely putting any pressure on that ankle.
Ish Smith started the second half in Curry’s place.
The same ankle gave Curry problems all last season, causing him to miss eight games. He had surgery over the summer to repair torn ligaments in that ankle. He spent months rehabilitating the ankle before getting clearance in September.
